Share

The Equality Act protects employees with religious or philosophical beliefs from discrimination because of those beliefs.

For our final session on "Including the Offensive" we were joined by Chris Milsom, Barrister at Cloisters Chambers.  Chris is an expert in this field having represented the successful claimant in the first Tribunal case to find that ethical veganism was a protected belief.  He is also currently working on cutting edge cases dealing with transgender rights and gender-critical believes.  He shared his fascinating insights into the fast developing area.
